There is a mysterious gate at Flag Lake that we've been wanting to open, so I stopped on Thursday to get the combination so we could go exploring this weekend. Turns out the gate combination changes every night at midnight, which the lady who gave me the combo neglected to explain, but some friendly security forces guys explained it to us and let us through yesterday. Doesn't that sound like the premise of a Stephen King novel? Eeek.
It was good to see pine trees. And other bits of nature we've been missing dreadfully. If you're so inclined, you can click on the collage to see more pictures over at Flickr, which I am trying to figure out after they went and changed it all.
